Maik Twelsiek is back on track

German Pro Maik Twelsiek had a somewhat forgettable season in 2012 but looks to be back at full strength this year. In 2012 he raced for Team Abu Dhabi and competed on a Storck Aero 2, but that combination just did not work. Basically that Storck was simply not a good fit for him. For this season he went back to his trusted Scott Plasma 3 and he had a video chat with us after his 2nd place finish at Ironman Austria in Klagenfurt.
